SERVING VIRGINIA AND HIBBING AREAS FOR OVER 100 YEARS

Delores H. Severson

September 30, 1936 - November 14, 2022

Delores H. Severson, age 86, of Virginia, passed quietly in her sleep on the morning of November 14th, 2022.

She was born in LaCrosse WI, September 30, 1936, but moved to the rural Gilbert MN area of Hutter, a place that would stay in her heart forever.  In 1964, she married Daniel Severson, whom she would be devoted to for 44 years until his death in 2008.

She had numerous paid and volunteer positions in the community, lending her time and talents to those in need.  The one constant in her life was singing.  She was a 50+ year member of the East Range Choral Society (now Range of Voices).  She also sang for many years as part of the choir at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Virginia.

She is survived by sons, Peter (Kathy) and John (Cheryl); grandchildren: Kolden, Senja, Alyssa and Amanda; sister, Kate Ellingson; many nieces and nephews and lots of cousins, related and unrelated.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Dan; sister, Laura; parents, Ilma and Fernand Klepitch.

The family would like to thank all the medical staff that kept her moving through the years and residents of the Washington Manor (especially the Hutter Bunch) for making Senior living a new home.

A celebration of life will be held on November 23rd, 2022 at 1pm at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 1111 8th St. S Virginia, MN 55792.  In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Range of Voices, 417 5th St So Virginia MN 55792

    Dee was my dear cousin; we lived a mile apart in GHutter. I was able to be her maid of honor when she and Danny got married. I miss her so much already!
    Love, Liisa

    Each summer my mother made it a point to travel from our home in the San Fernando Valley to the range to spend time with her siblings. Those trips gave me the priceless opportunity to spend time with my all my cousins, Delores was no exception. Each summer for many summers I would look forward to spending the summer at Delores’ home with her mother, Ilma and sisters Laura and Kay. I have many wonderful memories of Delores and the fun times we shared together. She will be missed indeed.
